The community service offered by students and faculty in the College of Education’s “Block B” courses has helped earn Butler University national recognition.
Butler was one of 641 colleges and universities named to the 2010 President’s Higher Education Community Service Honor Roll, saluting the campus’ commitment to volunteering, service-learning and civic engagement.
Between June 2009 and June 2010, some 47 Butler students and 3 COE faculty members participated in “Block B” classes providing a total of 5,808 service hours.
“Block B” courses focus on methods for teaching reading, math, social studies and science. Classes are taught at a local public elementary school, allowing future teachers to work with children in grades 3-5 in individualized tutoring, after-school enrichment programs and fieldtrips to area museums.
